The group of No1 Traveller lounges have teamed up with Travelzoo to offer lounge passes for £20 each.
Whilst I’ve never yet had the chance to visit one, the No1 lounges have a good reputation and are substantially above the quality of the usual third party airport lounge. Take a look at their website.
Current locations are Gatwick North, Gatwick South, Heathrow Terminal 3, Stansted (x2) and Birmingham. The Heathrow Terminal 3 lounge is pictured below.
With this promo, you can pre-buy a lounge pass for £20. The price includes a glass of champagne and the usual buffet, beer, wine and spirits. Given the wide range of free food (hot and cold) plus free drinks (except champagne), wi-fi and the high standard of decor, it looks like a decent deal if you will have a couple of hours to kill and do not otherwise have lounge access. (You can also access No1 Traveller lounges, for free, with a Priority Pass card if you have one of those.)
The link to the Travelzoo promotion is here. The offer is valid until 19th April and the passes can be used until 28th September.
How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, here are the four options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit card:
The Platinum Card from American Express comes with two free Priority Pass cards, one for you and one for a supplementary cardholder. Each card admits two so a family of four gets in free. You get access to all 1,300 lounges in the Priority Pass network – search it here.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
If you have a small business, consider American Express Business Platinum instead.
Additional lounge visits are charged at £20. You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.
There is no annual fee for Amex Gold in Year 1 and you get a 20,000 points sign-up bonus. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard gets you get a free LoungeKey card, allowing you access to the LoungeKey network. Guests are charged at £20 although it may be cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card for your partner.
The card has a fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer. Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.
